6:47 am
involved in family disputes. this comes from miss see robinson who wants us to settle an ongoing dispute between her and her husband. >> be careful. >> i'm a little nervous. miss see writes i say the sound of thunder is from the lightning hitting the ground. he said it's from the cold air hitting hot air. so, which one of us is right? >> i tend to go with mr. robinson. i wouldn't think it was miss see's explanation. >> you know what, i'm going to stay away from the question altogether. >> that's fine. >> i will try. miss see, here is the deal. you are bought right in some ways but you are both wrong in other ways. >> all right. >> the true answer is not either of your ideas here. what happens is -- let me first say the parts you got right. you say it's from thunder -- lightning hitting the ground. not from lightning hitting the ground but the lightning itself
6:48 am
that causes the thunder. your husband has it kind of right, the cold air hitting the hot air causes the thunderstorm activity in the first place. in an indirect way he is right as well. here is what happens. i love the science to it. i won't get too technical because we don't have a lot of time. but what happens when you see a bolt of lightning, it creates a channel in the atmosphere. that channel, that lightning bolt can heat up the atmosphere to about 50,000 degrees fahrenheit. that is incredibly hot. so, what happens is when that lightning causes the atmosphere to heat up that rapidly, the air in that channel, when the lightning disappears is compressed, super duper compressed. it's that process of that air becoming decompressed that causes the thunder. >> decompressed, not compressed. >> it's initially compressed by the lightning. but then it's the process of
6:49 am
the pressure becoming undone in the channel that causes the rumble of thunder. >> amazing. >> isn't that cool? >> i never would have imagined that. >> if i was going to side with someone, i would have sided with the person that said the lightning hits the ground. >> that's why it's not lightning then thunder. lots of fascinating stats. 15 million thunderstorms around planet earth every year. they can travel 140,000 miles a great question. i hope i helped answer your family dispute. high five each other and move along. >> no one is wrong. >> absolutely. >> all right. thank you for writing in. if you have a question you want answered, go to and
